Product Description

“The Forza Runner is by far one of the best running shoes I own. They’re not only functional but trendy as well” – James W.

Road running is now even lighter. We took our best-selling road runner, the HFS, reduced the weight, and added a sock-like, breathable, knit mesh upper that feels one with your foot. Of course we know that when you’re not running you’ll love showing off the sleek style.

The Forza Runner may feel narrow, but it will break in and stretch out. So if you think you have a REALLY wide foot, the Forza Runner may not work for you.

FEEL CONNECTED TO YOUR WORLD WHEN YOU RUN IN THE FORZA RUNNER

READY FOR ACTION

When Italians use the term “Forza” they mean “You have the strength to do this!” The Forza Runner gives you the strength to take on your favorite road run and so much more. The knit mesh upper makes this shoe breathable and lightweight, giving it a sock-like feel. At just 7.2oz (for each Men’s size 9), the Forza Runner is so light you won’t even know you have them on.

JUST THE WAY YOU LIKE IT

Protection? Or barefoot feel? You can have whichever you want with the removable 3.5mm insole. Leave it in for extra protection, or take it out for optimal ground feel.  Enjoy road-gripping traction with the tire-inspired tread design. Like any other shoe we make, our FeelTrue® rubber soles are backed with our 5,000 mile sole warranty.

WE MAKE RUNNING SHOES SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Forza Runner.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for better balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you the combination of grip, protection, and ground-feel your brain wants to help you Live Life Feet First.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

These shoes are rad!

If you like the HFS you'll like these. The only con I can think of is that I wish the upper had some elastic. something closer to the oswego would be way easier to get on.

Just What I’m Looking For

I made the switch to minimalist shoes this past year and now I’m always looking for stylish and functional options. These looked great online and in person. I didn’t like the feel out of the box, but removing the insoles helped with that. Haven’t put many miles on them yet, but I like the flexibility for running or weight training.

Very similar to hfs

Fits a little more snug than other products but overall very good for working out.

Great fit

The shoes are really comfortable and light. I'm not a super fit person who does marathons and such but I do workout daily and since it's cold I haven't got to try them outside but on the treadmill it's just a beautiful smooth run. They are a little snug trying to get your foot in and if you have a very wide foot I could see it being not worth it but these are actually way above what I was expecting. Will probably start wearing them to work with how nice they feel.

Happy teen, happy feet

My teenage son really likes the fit. They fit perfectly snug around his foot. He likes the snug fit, although it makes them a little harder to put on. He also likes that they’re small and light. Normally, he doesn’t like flat soled shoes because they make his feet sore. But he wore these for four hours to a church dance and his feet were happy. He also loves how they look. Especially for a teen, you want some cool looking shoes. I also like that if he goes running in the evening, the shoes make it easier to see him in the dark. It was raining the first time he wore these shoes and his feet stayed dry.

Great Shoe for Doing Life

I really enjoy the new Forza Runner. It’s a great wearing shoe, it’s light, comfy, and it’s a fantastic shoe for “doing life in.” Yes, it’s a running shoe, but I don’t really wear shoes for certain activities. I wear shoes for living my life. I’ve put the Forza Runner through the paces. I’ve trained in it, hiked in it, played in it, shopped in it and taught in it for hours. Most days I wore it, I wore for over 12 hours. I never got to the point where I wanted to take them off. And that’s my test. If I don’t want to take them off, and they allow me to live my life well, then its a great shoe! I would definitely recommend these shoes to a friend.
